    I prefer not to do this, but I do expect them to start down to about -20F without being plugged in. I always use the 5W-40 oil in winter, and that helps them stand up to the abuse, lets them turn over faster and brings the oil pressure up quicker.

    Did you mean that you had seen some of the mechanical cold start advance rigs on some of these? I'm wondering where i could get my hands on one like shown in the image in my above post.
